According to a Keck School of Medicine of USC-led study, Vitamin D deficiency in pregnant women could preprogram babies to grow into obese children and adults. The study findings were published in the journal Pediatric Obesity
The FDA has approved dexamethasone intraocular suspension (Dexycu, Icon Bioscience, Inc.), a long-acting treatment for inflammation associated with cataract surgery that allows patients to dispense with weeks of self-administered eye drops.
In this study, scientists examined the consequences of microgravity experienced during spaceflight and of important parallels and connections to the physiology of aging. Microgravity during spaceflight influences cardiovascular function, cerebral autoregulation, musculoskeletal, and sensorimotor system performance.
A new study, published in Neuropsychologia, reveals that the amygdala may play a larger role in the brain's ability to recognize faces than previously thought. Researchers from The University of Texas have found that the amygdala responded more specifically to faces than the fusiform face area (FFA), a brain part known for facial recognition.
Women who suffer from depression, anxiety, and fatigue are more likely to be injured at work, according to a new study published in the Journal of Occupational and Environmental Medicine led by researchers from the Colorado School of Public Health's Center for Health, Work & Environment on the CU Anschutz Medical Campus. The study found that these health factors significantly affected women's risk of injury but not men's risk.
Researchers conducted a comparative analysis to identify genes that are expressed differentially in Alzheimer's disease (AD). The GMPR gene, which encodes human guanosine monophosphate reductase 1 (GMPR1), was found to gradually increase its expression with AD progression.
According to a new study, researchers observed that a limiting population movements during an epidemic outbreak may not always be the best approach. This type of response may adversely affect a society's ability to resume functioning normally. When an epidemic outbreak such as those caused by the H1N1, Zika or SARS viruses takes place, containment measures may seem to be the most reasonable solution. The study is published in Nature Scientific.
According to this study, researchers observed that nanoagents can store light energy from sources such as sunlight, near-infrared light or even light from mobile phones, and then emit long-lasting 'afterglow light'. This Nanoagents, known as 'semiconductor polymer nanoparticles' (SPNs). The study was published in the scientific journal Nature Biotechnology.
Oral prednisolone significantly reduces the length of hospital stay in preschool-age children with virus-associated wheeze who present to the emergency department (ED), a new randomized controlled trial confirms.
The human genome contains thousands of genes, but to get the information from a gene requires it to be copied. A team of researchers, led by Dr Steven West from the University of Exeter's Living Systems Institute, has taken a crucial step towards understanding how the transcription process stops — or is terminated. The study was published in Genes & Development
In this study, researchers examined that patients who have never been prescribed opioids, larger numbers of tablets given with the initial prescription is associated with long-term use and more tablets leftover that could be diverted for misuse or abuse. The study published in the Journal of General Internal Medicine.
